The youth ministry at MCC strives to provide a safe environment for students from grades 6-12 to come and connect with friends, learn about the God who created them, and tackles some of lifes toughest challenges together.  As a ministry we desire to raise up devoted followers of Jesus Christ, whose faith is built on God's ability to walk with them through life.

MCC Students meet Wednesday nights between 7 PM - 9 PM

What to Expect at MCC Student Ministries
When you arrive, enter through the middle doors of the building - go down the stairs and turn left.
  • Hangout Time: The first 15 minutes is hangout time.  Students enjoy conversation, snacks, carpet ball, and fooseball.
